Views needed on protecting historic buildings

Gosport people are being asked their views on changes to the Bury Road conservation area, which protects important buildings in the neighbourhood.

Gosport Borough Council is proposing to re-draw the area to include more buildings, helping to make sure they are protected from inappropriate development. Some other buildings would come out.

A conservation area is designed to preserve and enhance the special historic or architectural interest of an area and help ensure that future development has regard to this.

Bury Road conservation area takes in Bury Cross at its western end, extending east along Bury Road to include Regency and Victorian housing as far as Abingdon Close.  The earliest buildings date from the 16th century.

Buildings it is proposed should be added to the area include:

  • Nicholson Hall – a memorial to Benjamin Nicholson of Camper and Nicholsons
  • 258-262 Anns Hill Road – once the Harvest Home pub and later a Royal Marines Association club
  • Lodge Gardens – a high-quality 1960s residential development
  • a 1930s thatched cottage in Bury Crescent

Buildings it is proposed should be removed are: 1-2 Wilton Close, 16 Privett Road and 64 Foster Road. These are either not of historic interest or not part of the core area.

Residents can see a small exhibition about the proposals at Gosport Town Hall or Thorngate Hall, or view them here.

They can fill in a short questionnaire at one of the exhibitions, or online.

Comments can be sent by email or by hand or post to Bury Road Consultation, Planning and Regeneration, Town Hall, High Street, Gosport PO12 1EB.

The consultation starts on Monday 9 July and ends on Monday 6 August.

After the consultation, councillors will be asked to make a decision on the proposals.
